In other news, the Intrepid One™ dissects the recent BigLaw exodus and explains the reasoning:
What is behind the recent Big Law exodus?"Success....happiness...extremely rewarding...loving your job."
Legal experts say more attorneys are rejecting a career in Big Law for life as a solo or small-firm attorney. Their reasons include frustration with their inability to make partner, a desire for flexibility with fees and clients, a yen for more family time and an entrepreneurial spirit.
"The reality is there are fewer opportunities for associates to make partner today than there were 10 years ago, and that's because of the change in the marketplace in the new normal," said Bill Brennan, a law firm consultant with Philadelphia-based Brennan Strategy. "They may be reading the tea leaves and deciding they may as well go off on their own. Only 60 to 70 percent of associates are going to make partner these days."
The good news, according to Brennan, is that nearly all of those breaking away from big firms find success and happiness running their own firms.
"There's a period of intense anxiety but it's extremely rewarding," he said. "They say. 'I wish I did it sooner.' They love it."
